Waka Flocka Flame was the latest in a long line of celebrities to get arrested on a weapons charge, after he brought a loaded gun with him to the Atlanta airport.

That’ll tend to get you in trouble, we’ve heard.

The rapper got popped inside Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport earlier today when a security scan turned up a loaded handgun in his bag.

Waka didn’t have a permit for it. Shocker.

The 28-year-old, also familiar to you if you watch Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta online, was promptly arrested and charged with Carrying a Weapon in a Prohibited Place.

He was taken to Clayton County jail.

No word on why he felt packing a loaded gun, for which he had no permit, through a metal detector in one of the most tightly guarded places in the U.S. was a good call.

But hey, at least he didn’t joke about having a bomb (Aldon Smith) or having come from Africa (guy accosted this week on US Airlines flight by HAZ/MAT team).

Silver linings.
